Validator.js is a lightweight jQuery validation plugin for Bootstrap that creates and displays error messages for invalid form fields before submitting. Supports both Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4.

Validation rules included:

  • Required.
  • Email.
  • Date and time.
  • Min/max length.
  • Check/uncheck.
  • Regex.

Basic usage:

1. Include jQuery library, Bootstrap's style sheet and the jQuery Validator.js script on the web page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="validator.js"></script>

2. Initialize the plugin and apply the validation rules (with custom error messages) to the form fields as follows:

new Validation('#form', {
    fields: [
        {
            name: 'text1',
            rule: {
                type: 'required',
                prompt: 'Please type in any value'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text2',
            rule: {
                type: 'email',
                prompt: 'Please enter a valid email address'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text3',
            rule: {
                type: 'minLength:5',
                prompt: 'Enter at least 5 characters'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text4',
            rule: {
                type: 'maxLength:5',
                prompt: 'You cannot enter more than 5 characters'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text5',
            rule: {
                type: 'regex:^test5$',
                prompt: 'This field does not match the regular expression'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text6',
            rule: {
                type: 'required',
                prompt: 'Field6 is disabled'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text7',
            rule: {
                type: 'checked',
                prompt: 'Any checkbox needs to be checked'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text8',
            rule: {
                type: 'checked',
                prompt: 'One radio needs to be checked'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text9',
            rule: {
                type: 'required',
                prompt: 'Select one field'
            }
        }, {
            name: 'text10',
            rule: {
                type: 'date',
                prompt: 'Please enter a valid date format'
            }
        }
    ]
});
